The watermill in Veľké Teriakovce near Rimavská Sobota had a horizontal wheel. But it was threatened by extinction due to its technical condition and thanks to the Ozveny civic association it has been preserved.
This mill was built in 1800. After more than 100 years, it was modernised and functioning until 1961. In the region of Gemer-Malohont, it was the longest functioning mill.
“However, it was dilapidating for 40 years until our civic association came around and thanks to support from Norway Grants, we reconstructed it comprehensively,” said volunteer Miroslava Vargová from Ozveny, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
